I have hypothyroidism and take levothyroxine. After every meal I experience extreme fatigue that can last hours. Has anyone had this experience and how did you correct the problem?
Thank you. I thought I was crazy. I get so sleepy to the point of nodding mid conversation. Always after meal s.
I feel the same, they just raided the Mcg again to stop me from from crashing in the afternoon.
This sounds blood sugar related. Please get your A1C tested.
I made some changes. I don't eat breakfast, and I now take the levothyroxine 90 minutes after lunch and I am no longer sleepy the rest of the day. Strange, because you are supposed to take it on an empty stomach. But it's working for me.
Now I'm taking the levothyroxine with my first meal and it's working and I'm no longer tired all day. Taking it in the morning 30- 60 minutes before eating did NOT activate the medication for me.
I take my meds in the middle of the night so it is not near any meal due to the hemochromatosis
